#AyUpAugust #PillowTalk

My “ship” Star Wars to-be-colored pillow and comic book!

squirrelbrain Clever! Are you going to colour it or leave it?! 4mo
CrowCAH @squirrelbrain I‘m leaving it white and black/blue, matches my nautical bedspread better ☺️ 4mo
Ddzmini Love the pillow 🥰🥰🥰 4mo
CrowCAH @Ddzmini thanks! 😊 4mo

"There are two ways to learn a language fast, and one of them is when you're under ten and have a pliable young brain."
"What's the other?"
He grinned. "Over a pillow."

Not the color of the book, but fascinating #RedReading about female Soviet bomber pilots during WWII. "Order of the Red Banner. Order of the Red Star." #AugustABC @Eggs

All the Old Knives: A Novel | Olen Steinhauer

(Day 18 - #PillowTalk)

A pair of CIA spies stationed in Vienna shared some “pillow talk” during their tenure there. But that‘s in the past—six years (and about 6000 miles) later, the estranged pair share a tense, intimate dinner in a restaurant in Carmel-by-the-Sea. But shared pillow talk and dinner does not necessarily imply shared allegiances. Set entirely at the dinner table, we are slowly drawn into a slippery, ambiguous climax.

squirrelbrain Sounds good! 😁👍❤️ 4mo
gradcat @squirrelbrain It IS good, but I think fans of his spy novel series & the tagged book may not think it‘s one of his best...🤷🏽‍♀️ 4mo

For some reason I thought of this book for #PillowTalk even though it‘s about female friendship. But I guess that talk before sleep can technically classify as pillow talk 🛌 😉

This is a good book and a tough read that I read years and years ago but has stayed with me.💜

squirrelbrain Sounds like a good one - stacked ❤️ 4mo

I‘m ready for this book to be less popular because every time I see it, I get the Ying Yang Twins singing Wait in my head. The GRAPHIC version. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Fair warning if you watch it on YouTube!

BlameJennyJane @Megabooks they did! Lol 4mo
Megabooks @squirrelbrain I really wouldn‘t. If I hadn‘t first heard it in my early 20s, I‘d probably never have remembered it. It seems like songs from my young adulthood stick more. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 4mo
riversong153 Hahahahaha I remember this song! 4mo
Megabooks @riversong153 It‘s definitely a memorable one!! 🤣 4mo

#AyUpAugust My brain is frazzled.... sorry I‘ve been offline xx I need a few shots of #Tequila and this weekend to be over to get myself back on track. The protagonist of the tagged book numbs herself into a DEEP sleep hoping to awaken to a saner self and a better life, avoiding #pillowtalk and human interaction for an entire year. Seems reasonable?!?! This book was too odd and pretentious for me to enjoy it.

Cathythoughts Just reading that tequila is actually really good for you 🤷🏻‍♀️👍🏻 4mo
TrishB Not read this, it doesn‘t really appeal to me 🤷‍♀️ 4mo
squirrelbrain I‘m not sure I fancy this one either @TrishB ! Mind you, working long hours and then too much peopling at the weekends has left me longing for just one hour of peace and relaxation, like you Cindy. I think even I‘d find a year too long! 4mo

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I didn‘t care for this at all. It was repetitive and boring. Thanks so much - I thought I was alone in my opinion! 4mo
Crazeedi Take care Cindy! I'm sure you're travel weary too! Have a safe trip home, unless you already are, if so rest and relax! 4mo
KarenUK Sorry you‘re having a tough time. Hope things improve soon x 4mo
Cinfhen Thanks friends, it‘s a mostly “good” frazzle but frazzled nonetheless....family obligations, infinite amount of laundry ( and mom‘s machine broke...LAST MONDAY!!!!) migraines, hair toner that turned my hair violet ( it‘s been fixed) one wedding ( & one funeral) all since Friday 😜😜😜 @KarenUK @Crazeedi @Megabooks @Cathythoughts but I‘m relishing the happy moments 4mo
Cinfhen I think you might like this book @TrishB do you want my copy??? 4mo
Cinfhen @MicheleinPhilly 😂😜😘 4mo
Cinfhen I‘m glad to know I wasn‘t alone @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled so MUCH love for this book but I just didn‘t get it!!! Ugh!!! And the ending..... 4mo
TrishB That sounds like a bonkers week, though violet hair sounds good to me 💜 happy to receive any books!! 😘 look after yourself. 4mo

“I mean we‘re both alone. We‘ve been by ourselves for too long. For years. I‘m lonely. I think you might be too. I wonder if you would come and sleep in the night with me. And talk.”

A wonderful, quiet story about two old people that have an extraordinary relationship, finding solace through companionship.

The Nightshade nightstand reader | Roy Zarucchi, Caroline Page

My head is surrounded by books...on my cart as well as on my nightstand. Not to mention the stack on a stand in my bedroom reading nook. Plus, the books stacked all throughout the house...

Maybe, with the books so close to me as I sleep, I‘ll read all these stories via osmosis?? 😂

#pillowtalk #ayupaugust

QuietlyLaura Lovely quilt! Looks so cozy. ☺️ 4mo
DivineDiana If that works, I know that I‘ll be a lot smarter! 4mo
Gissy 😂🤣I feel so well when I know people is surrounding by books all around the house. I don't feel I'm alone!📚📚📚😍 4mo

squirrelbrain I wish we could read books by osmosis- our TBRs wouldn‘t be anything like as long! 📚❤️ 4mo
Librarybelle @DivineDiana @squirrelbrain Osmosis would be wonderful - imagine the knowledge! And yes, the reduction in the TBR pile! 4mo
Librarybelle @Gissy So true! 4mo
Cinfhen Looks like the perfect spot ❤️ 4mo

The Flatshare: A Novel | Beth O'Leary

The #pillowtalk in this contemporary romance, is mostly by post-it note, left on the pillow of the bed they share, yet they‘ve never met!
A perfect book to throw in your hand luggage/beach bag, this charming British rom-com is full of really likable characters.
The premise is ridonkulous, but the resulting post-it relationship of the 1st half is cute, and Tiffy and Leon just made me smile on every single page. A fun summer romp. 🧠🍬

squirrelbrain I‘ve been meaning to read this - sounds a perfect fluffy read! 4mo
Cathythoughts I have this on kindle 99p ... 👍🏻💕💕💕 4mo
Cinfhen Sounds delightful 🥰 4mo

KarenUK @Cathythoughts @squirrelbrain @cinfhen It‘s got all the ingredients to make a great Richard Curtis film! .... an unlikely/unbelievable premise, likable MCs, an array of quirky friends, and just feels very British! (edited) 4mo
Crazeedi It sounds really funny, and I'm not usually into this kind of book, an unlikely but great premise! 4mo
marleed It made me want to watch An affair to remember! 4mo
